Course Development : Development Environment

  • If you're developing course content:

    You don't need anything other than your regular development tools. You can view the HTML files in your browser, and the browser will simply ignore the LM-Light calls that you've included.

  • If you want to test the course/LMS interactions:

    You need access to either:

    • An LMS supporting the LM-Light standard - the LM-Light Reference LMS will do just fine; or
    • A server supporting PHP (you can set up your own server, or most commercial hosting companies will set you up with a suitable account for $10 or less per month), plus one of the LM-Light 'Development Stubs' which provide a dummy LM-Light library

    You can find the Reference LMS and the Development Stubs on [this page].
